Hey Everyone, welcome to 6 Things Thursday, thanks for being here. Today I’m counting down 6 things you can do during this lengthy quarantine in the time of COVID-19. But first some updates on me.

So it’s been about two weeks since I’ve sent a newsletter and I do apologize for that. I was going through the motions and burning with cabin fever during this quarantine. I had a lot of freelance work to catch up on and was just feeling all around uninspired.

My psychiatrist changed the strength of my prescription and I was sleeping a lot more than I should have been. So it’s been a struggle guys to be productive and not just give in to full sloth-mode and just eat and binge Netflix. Which brings us to the theme of this email.

Other than trying to hold sloth at bay, I’ve been semi-productive. I’ve begun working on my website which I hope to have an official launch by the end of the month. On Medium, I launched a new publication called Flourish Mag, which centers on Mental Health, Wellness and Self-help.

I have a book I’m also working on self-publishing more on that as it progresses and I’m still planning to release a Podcast this year. Lots of goodies in the pipeline. Without further adieu…here’s the list!

6 Things-to-do During COVID-19 Quarantine

  1. Read a novel each week.

  2. Spring clean and rearrange your closet.

  3. Get on Udemy or Coursera and sign-up for a course. They always have major sales where you can learn something for as little as $11.99.

  4. Work on your fitness. Being inside doesn’t mean you have to sit around gaining weight and eating all your snacks. Turn to YouTube, search for a workout and get moving right from your living room.

  5. Travel via your computer. There are 30 Ways You Can Travel From Your Couch.

  6. Journal for self-discovery. This is the perfect time to get in touch with yourself. Pinterest has many journal prompts you can use.

    My mind was preoccupied in March so I didn’t write as much as I did in February on Medium. But, one thing that was different for me in March on Medium was that for the first time I had a 100% Curation rate which was absolutely amazing. Here are friend-links to all of the stories I wrote in March.
